Description: These are bare non-addressable 1 meter long RGB LED strips that come packed with 60 5060 LEDs per meter.  As these are bare LED strips that have no protective coating, your project won't be water proof but there is access to each 5060 LED and each strip length can be easily modified. You will be able to control the whole LED RGB Strip together giving you cool lighting effects for your car or perhaps under cabinet lighting in your kitchen!

Note: These come in 1M segments on a reel. They are preterminated with wires, as shown in the pictures.

  • Do these need a driver? If so which should I get? I’d like to run it off of an Arduino taking in either 12v or 5v. Preferably 5v.

  • I’m thinking, is it possible to just de-solder them all and end up with 60 RGB LEDs at a 1/3 of the price of buying them individually?

  • Are these adhesive backed? If not, is there a suggested means of mounting them?

  • It’d be really great if you could post the circuit diagram. i.e. how the SMD resistors I see on the strip are connected to the LEDs. Otherwise, figuring out what voltage to drive it with will be guesswork. Thanks!

    • The strips have labels near each segment connection terminal (the bare copper pads/terminated ends), and one of those labels reads “+12V” - this tells you both the voltage, and that it’s a common anode strip :)

      For the curious: There’s 3 LED modules with each separate color in series on each segment, with a 300 Ohm (for the red leds) and 150 Ohm (for green and blue LEDs) resistors doing some very basic current limiting. Each segment is, in turn, parallel to each other. Now for homework: Guesstimate the forward voltage of the red, green and blue LEDs, assume current for each to be 20mA.

      • So does that mean that you can have red and blue on next to each other, or would you get purple(ish) light from turning them both on at the same time?

        • You would get a purplish (magenta) light. The red, green and blue LEDs are really just very tiny chips inside a LED module, much like, say, LED - SMD RGB.

          If you wanted separate colors per LED module, you’d have to look at one of the addressable LED strips (in which case I’d say go straight for the WS2812-based ones barring any specific requirements).

          • Good to know. I already ordered these, but for my project they should Gert an interesting result. I may do a more advanced version of this project later on with 5m of addressable ones, but for now these will be cool. Thanks for the quick reply!

            • Depending on what it is you’re trying to do, you could always cut the strip up (they are segmented for that purpose, 3 LED modules per segment) to however many separate colors you’d want, and drive each separately. Down side is running out of I/O pins on your controller :)
